depends how tall you are, for street I run about two 3mm spacers, Eclat Mercury TL and 10 inch bars, I run 8.75s for dirt tho.

for me its still just the seat setup you got going on, specifically the seat imo, but I dont know.


OBVIOUSLY SPACERS ARE CARBON AYYYYYYYY


Edit: wrong thread Wink

And having the seat too low is too high? I dont understand buddy xD

I figured I'd find out how tall I was the other day... 5 foot f*cking 5, man.

It f*cking sucks being short, but it's cool because/low bars, short frames and being able to get on buses for a half fair. Makes getting sold hard but like, beard.

I was tired! And Kieran, i've got a mate who enjoyed being in a similar situation to you, he had ID showing he was 18 but also had ID showing he was 16 for kids fares with just about everything xD I cant remember which one was real though..

I'll be at a shop buying fags and drink "yeah man I'm f*cking 18, lost my ID the other night"

Goes to get a bus "I'm 16, honest."

Top loaders are not the solution to everything.

Seems with that theory this forum is like:
Back problems? Top load.
Knee problems? Top load.
Bars too low? Top load.
Got a small dick? Top load.

No. Only certain posters. I will forever only rock a front load. But i did switch my bike up a lot. Gum tires and back to big fours. Feels great. Was slowly getting out of riding but this setup has made it all fresh again.

Front load is love. Front load is life.

FLs are easier to work around/on, IMHO they look better, in my personal experience they generally handle high speed better, especially if you like a bike that can corner (gets your CG lower so you can carve better), and they actually provide a more healthy, straighter back and arms riding position. If you find it uncomfortable you should probably work on flexibility/stretching. With the heights of bars these days, there's really no reason you can't run an FL.


Don't get me wrong, I like TL stems too, but I find it hard to get loose in the air with them since they're more stable, and ramps are awkward from the extra front end height causing most of the rider's weight to end up over the BB and less on the front.

And yes, this is my opinion.
